MERC executes ongoing projects covering a range of topics identified as important to our school divisions by the Policy and Planning Council. This includes larger empirical research studies, literature reviews, and professional development activities. Most of these projects involve dissemination of information through research reports, research briefs, podcasts, and videos. The links below describe these projects in more detail and provide links to connected materials and resources.
